The best shades of pink

I spotted this home on Architectural Digest Spain yesterday and had to share because I am looking for bolder colour ideas for my dining room and THIS IS IT!!! Designed by Maximiliano Crovato, this 60 m2 home in São Paulo uses pinks throughout and they are absolutely stunning shades of a sort of dusty coral pink and a brighter fuschia shade. Paired with purple and red accents, it's bold and unexpected and super fabulous!

NAP Żoliborz - an architect's showroom

On Sunday I featured some work by NAP from Poland. They also sent along photos of their architect's showroom and workspace and I am absolutely blown away buy this space. Dark colours, a mix of vintage and modern, original architecture (original window joinery, doors, jambs, wooden floors and layout of the rooms were preserved in the renovation)'s a style I always gravitate towards. NAP decided to paint the wood floors and stairs dark, and this led to shades of grey, graphite and peach used throughout. All furnishings and accessories are available through their store - a mix of Vitra, DCW Editions, Gubi, Carl Hansen, Tom Dixon with EMU, Fatboy and Fermob in the garden space.

A colourful farmhouse

There is a little bit of country and a whole pile of colour in this farmhouse designed by California interior designer Alison Kandler. Since many of our readers seem delighted when we post some colourful homes I thought you might enjoy this one. A LOT. No shortage of colour here! Soooo many wallpapers too. A pattern bonanza!

How Ashley Hicks magically transformed his rental apartment

Low ceilings, beige wall-to-wall carpet, plain doors, ugly windows, a grim in a rental isn't easy but designer Ashley Hicks certainly worked magic with his rental apartment. Graphic paint treatment on the walls, a photo transparency covering an ugly window, upholstery nails fancying up doors, paint details on cheap linen roller blinds, pendant lights made from copper and black paint, a handmade screen using a map of London to hide another ugly window, red vinyl and striped webbing used to spruce up a hallway, and the list goes on. Ashley may have spent a ton of time and energy transforming his apartment and customizing every square inch but the result is incredibly unique and dynamic and clearly well worth it.

Stylin' spaces just right until they become totally picture perfect. Love the work of Stockholm based stylist/decorator Linda Åhman. Also totally digging the photo below with the 2 tone wall with a border of photos. What a great idea!
